Last Sunday night, I took my brother to see The Silent Comedy and Or, The Whale at the Casbah. It was the most suitable replacement for church that I could come up with.
We totally missed Hotel St. George. Oops. Sorry, Matt.
We found out before the show that the lightboard at the Casbah had blown out. So there were three lights turned on full blast and aimed at the ceiling (otherwise it would get way too hot on stage). Two with red filters, one with blue. Sigh.
Needless to say, I was pretty lazy with photos. I think I took maybe eight of Or, The Whale and exactly one of The Silent Comedy. A few of the former actually came out.
Since the photos weren’t working out so well, I decided to take some video of them in action. Here’s “Fight Song”:
Like I said, the one photo I took of Josh turned out completely blurry, so I just shot a bunch of video. Despite it being hot and packed in the Casbah, they put on a great show, gospel routine included. If you haven’t seen them, that probably sounds cheesy, but I’m being completely honest and serious when I say that this is how church should feel. Joyous, racous, and FUN. The videos I shot only capture about a tenth of the energy that was in the room, but you get the idea.
